Elegant Art Deco Cufflinks

William Huger Egyptian revival cufflinks. (J9280)

L' Egyptien



Wonderfully detailed Egyptian Revival cufflinks from the Art Deco era.  On a small scale these cufflinks recall the ornate movie palaces of the 1920s exemplified by Grauman's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and the Louxor Palais du Cinema in Paris.  A diamond set on one side even sparkles like a searchlight at a movie premiere.  Created by William Huger & Co. in 14kt gold, circa 1925.

In 1917 Theda Bara, starring in the film Cleopatra, sparked a passion for the architecture and decorative motifs of ancient Egypt.  The Art Deco mania for all things Egyptian - furthered by the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922 - found expression in objects of all sizes - from luxurious movie palaces to intimate, small jewels.  The close-up above illustrates the fine detail of the stylized lotus blossoms, papyrus reeds and geometric motifs that decorate the borders of these cufflinks.

The backs of the cufflinks are beautifully crafted in 14kt yellow gold.  Sturdy brackets and cross bars secure the links on the cuff while protecting the reverse of the diamonds.  The yellow gold surfaces are polished to a bright, mirror-like finish - please excuse the shadowy reflections from the camera.

These elegant cufflinks were created by William Huger & Company, a maker of fine cufflinks and other jewels during the early decades of the last century.  The firm is especially known for its striking, richly detailed designs during the Art Deco period.  The maker's mark of William Huger & Co. (an "H" squeezed in the middle) is visible on the reverse of the cufflinks just to the right of the precious metal mark ("14").
